Thankful Cards

Pin It We have so many things to be thankful for. And, sometimes, a simple "thank you" is enough, but, sometimes... showing gratitude with some art is needed. :) You don't have to paint a masterpiece... it can start with something as simple as some paint on paper.

We decided this morning to do just that. I cut up some paper that I rolled with paint into little 3x4 pieces that I could mount on a 4x6 card. We gathered some wooden blocks from my art stash, some leftover foam leaf stickers, and some fun fall colors.

I could have quickly stamped some leaf images and been done with it, but, I'm inspired EVERY DAY when I turn over the supplies to my son and see what HE creates. I'm never disappointed. The prints for the card turned out beautiful and we had a fun morning together making art. Yes, we went through almost a full package of wet wipes, and, I had to sacrifice a paintbrush (or two), but, I know the person receiving this thankful card will love it. That's what matters.
